9:03 am
very carefully what president putin is saying. he's saying we were surprised like you. he's not in russia right now. what we'd like him to do is make up his mind. where does he want to go? the united states would say you should expel him. please expel him. expel him back to the united states. what president putin is saying is that russia can't expel people and it can also extradite people but only if it has an agreement with the country. it does not have any agreement on expelling with the united states or extraditing anyone. therefore, his hands are tied. in a sense you can see he's splitting it. he's saying i want to do the right thing and the real point i think will be will snowden get on plane and go somewhere and the russians will not stop him.
9:04 am
that's what it's looking like. legally they will say we can't really stop him. that's not going to make the united states very happy. putin is saying i don't want any of this to distort relations with the united states and a senior official says this is positive. the bottom line is will he get on plane. >> john, i want to bring you into a conversation. you're at the airport. have you seen any signs of snowden there? what is it like this no man's land where he is at the airport? >> reporter: we haven't exited the air. we've learned a lot in the last 13 hours on the ground. number one snowden has not
9:05 am
gotten on this flight bound for havana. we took shots at the plane and waited to see the plane taxi to the runway. there was no white van suggesting he hi will be loaded on somewhere else. there's only one transit hotel. we've checked and they have suggested he's not been at the hotel. what's happened in the last hour is president putin has come forward and suggested they have no relations with snowden and the security services are not working with him add well. suggesting that the finger pointing from washington's not helping the situation. perhaps moscow is trying to buy some time to get the asylum worked out. perhaps they are looking at some of the documents snowden has as
9:06 am
well. >> tonight at 6:00 p.m. on the situation room wolf blitzer is going to take a look at his trail. nelson mandela remains in critical condition. crowds have been gathering there. earlier today white doves released in his honor. >> tell us what we know so far in terms of his condition and what is the anticipation? >> reporter: all we're getting at the moment is an update coming from authorities a few hours ago which said his condition is unchanged. that's not good news because he's in a critical condition. many people hoping that he
9:07 am
improved. clearly he hasn't. with that news throughout the afternoon you may see a lot more activity outside this hospital. you can hear the people, see the people singing, dancing behind me. ordinary south africans, people who live around this neighborhood coming here paying their respects in song. the songs have been coming over the last few hours. they are singing a hymn now. earlier on they were chanting a song about nelson mandela. they were chanting out his name over and over again. crucially there's been an increased police presence outside this hospital. at the entrance to the hospital have been closed off, blocked off, barricaded. there really is a shift in atmosphere. we haven't seen this in the last three weeks he's been in this hospital. >> all right.
9:08 am
thanks so much. following developments there. >> the president is going there later in the week. he was unofficially was going to visit nelson mandela if he was taking visitors. >> that's cancelled now. our prayers are with their family. the supreme court just a short time ago struck down a key part of the voting rights act. this part determines which states must get federal permission before they change their voting laws. it's been almost 50 years now. it's been mostly southern states that were subject to this special scrutiny now. the supreme court left it up to congress to revise that part of the law. you're in washington. i can see that. jeff, it's all uncertain now. what does this mean to those who thought we're hoping for a different decision. >> this really is the end of a
9:09 am
major error. the voting rights act of 1965 is the one law that gave african-americans the right to vote. it's true they technically had the right since the civil war in the 19th century but it was only because of the voting rights act that they got to vote especially in the south. the main tool in the voting rights act was this section 5 which said that the southern states, these nine states any time they wanted to do anything with their voting rules, change the district law, any sort of changes they had to get washington's approval first. the justice department's approval first. what the justice department said today that the formula to determine which states are covered by the right is unconstitutional. it's obsolete. it's too old and said if congress wants to add a new formula they can but in the real
9:10 am
world of 2013, the republican house of representatives is extremely unlikely to bring this part of the law to life, so i think what it really means is there will no longer be this kind of supervision of the south by washington and that may change how laws are enforced. >> jeff, the voting rights act help eed dismantle decades of discrimination. it was the corner stone of the zif civil rights movement. what happens if you don't have this oversight? >> that's the great question. it was a 5-4 decision. the sometimes have changed. the south is no longer the cease pool of discrimination that african-americans are not discriminated against in the way they used to be. a lot of civil rights groups are
9:11 am
m coming out and saying we don't believe that's the case. we believe section 5 is still needed. we think the states will start to turn back the clock. it's still true that voting discrimination is illegal but there is no longer this constant supervision that there was for so many years and we'll see whether the absence of that constant supervision leads to backtracks. that's going to be the great question. >> we're just getting this reaction from president obama. it part it reads i'm deeply dispiendi disappointed with the supreme court's decision. the voting rights act renewed by wide bipartisan parties in congress have help secure the right to vote for millions of americans. today's decision invalidated one of its core provisions upsets decades of well established practices that help make sure voting is fair especially in

i said i'm not sure. i made a couple of phone calls and it was true. it's been four years. seems like it was yesterday. by a lot of people's accounts you were playing some of that michael jackson video there. he's one of, if not the greatest, entertainers of all time. he would still be a very important figure if he was a member of the jackson 5. you can sometimes forget how big they were. you have michael solo career. he won 13 grammys. he sold more than 750 million records. that's amazing. that included thriller. more than 30 years later that's still the best selling record. 7 of the 9 tracks top ten hits. you don't hear that anymore in the music industry and that album changed the face of music.
